This was a living history area. There were three parts; a working ship yard, the seaport historical area, and a gallery area. We visited the first two. The historical area had many different types of ships and boats across the region and over time. Excellent signage to explain what you were seeing. Some buildings had working artisans. Most did not. The ship yard had several ships in dry dock. These were interesting to observe. Expect to spend several hours if you want to see it all.

My daughter was excited to see the panorama that was on display in the main building. She is an artist and was explaining to me how someone would have painted something like that.Walking through the village was a lot of fun. We spent about 4 hours here, but could have spent the day. Everything is included, except the main planetarium shows, although they do provide a walk-through show for everyone to gain entry.This would be fun and educational for children and adults. There are activities for the young ones, with some things that are scheduled throughout the day.

We spent about 2 hrs here, it was interesting to see all the historical activities, the bank, fish market, the cage for lobster…also had a very interesting introduction about the boat repair, such a talent job. It is a fantastic way to help people learn about history!

We enjoyed talking with the guides who were available throughout the Museum. They were friendly and very knowledgeable. Climbing up to go on the Morgan--whaling ship was well worth the climb. We learned lots about shipbuilding.

We really enjoyed Mystic Seaport. Unfortunately it was a rainy day, but we certainly didn't have to worry about crowds due to the weather. It was interesting to walk the the boat yard and see the boat they were restoring. The tall ships and the guides were very interesting. We found the people working there to be very knowledgeable and friendly. Really enjoyed the quaintness of the village and the buildings.
